321. THE CIA, CONGRESS AND THE PRESS

A documentary is presented in which former CIA employees and
other people who have written about the CIA tell of the extent of
penetration of the mass media by the CIA and how the media are
used by that agency to manipulate public opinion. CIA
whistleblowers such as John Stockwell relate how these operations
actually were implemented in various covert actions in which they
were involved around the world. At the conclusion of the film,
we look with John Stockwell at some other specific instances of
disinformation and compare these with the general practice of the
American government, particularly in the Reagan Administration,
to lie, to distort information, and to manipulate the press.
